DEBS 2013: 7th ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems
Arlington, Texas, USA, June 29 - July 3, 2013


The annual ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based
Systems (DEBS) provides a forum dedicated to the dissemination of
original research, the discussion of new practical insights, and the
reporting of relevant experience relating to event-based computing.
Event-based systems are rapidly gaining importance in many application
domains, ranging from real-time data processing in web environments,
logistics and networking, to complex event processing in finance and
security. The DEBS conference brings together researchers and
practitioners from these various communities to share their views and
reach a common understanding of current research work and open
challenges. The conference also provides a forum for facilitating the
exchange of ideas between academia and industry.

This year, DEBS is specifically encouraging submissions on the role,
importance and impact of events and event-based technologies in Big
Data systems and applications.
